Change History of Gpg4win

Please note that old releases still contain meanwhile fixed security issues.

Version 4.3.0 released 2024-01-25

  • Kleopatra: A new mail viewer mode has been added, allowing crypto mails received by mail clients without PGP/MIME or S/MIME support to be decrypted. This means that you can open an SMIME.p7m file or openpgp-encrypted-message.asc attachment with Kleopatra, and it will be displayed as a mail. [T6199]
  • Kleopatra: It is now possible to certify multiple certificates at once using the group interface. [T6469]
  • Okular (GnuPG Edition): This PDF reader has received a lot of updates and is now ready for everyday's use.
  • GnuPG: Support for proxy authentication using the Negotiation method has been added. [T6719]
  • GnuPG: Keyserver can now be configured to the value "none" to avoid unnecessary queries to non-existing keyservers that would slow down the system. [T6708]
  • GnuPG: Es kann nun der Wert "none" als Schlüsselserver verwendet werden, um unnötige Abfragen gegen nicht existierende Server zu vermeiden, die das System verlangsamen würden. [T6708]
  • GnuPG: A new option has been added to ignore specific CRL extensions. This can help as a workaround for problems with specific CRLs. [T6545]
  • GnuPG: Automatic proxy detection has been improved. [T5768]
  • Kleopatra: The start time of Kleopatra has been drastically improved on throttled systems with third-party software installed, which manipulates system calls. The number of system calls to start Kleopatra has been roughly halved. [T6259]
  • Kleopatra: The advanced options in the certification view are now automatically visible if they were open in the last certification. [T6480]
  • Kleopatra: Windows dark mode is now fully supported. [T4066]
  • Kleopatra: Some invalid operations, such as signing with an expired certificate, which would have resulted in errors, can no longer be triggered. The reason for this is indicated, too. [T6742 T6788]
  • Kleopatra: The support for Telesec signature cards has been improved. [T6830]
  • Kleopatra: When exporting or publishing certificates, the user is now informed if there are uncertified certificates in the export. This is especially useful when exporting groups. [T6766]
  • Kleopatra: Expiry dates after 19.01.2038 (year 2038 bug) are now possible. [T6736]
  • Kleopatra: The dialog to extend OpenPGP certificates has been improved and redundant options removed. [T6621]
  • Kleopatra: When creating archives, they are now written out as a .part file to improve error handling and canceling the operation without leaving a broken archive in the file system. [T6584]
  • Kleopatra: Updating certificates now also looks for updates in a Web Key Directory if one exists for the domain. [T5951]
  • Kleopatra: Progress bars are now also properly shown for S/MIME file operations. [T6534]
  • GpgOL: Added support for RFC2231 encoded attachment filenames, which increases compatibility with Apple Mail. [T6604]
  • GpgOL: Draft encryption with S/MIME certificates now skips CRL checks and is much faster and reliable. [T6827]
  • GpgOL: The error handling was improved if a preference for S/MIME is set and signing selected but no signing certificate can be found. See: https://gnupg.com/vsd/registry-settings.html (smimeNoCertSigErr) on how to add a custom message to instruct users what to do in this case. [T6683]
  • GpgOL: It is now possible to encrypt to S/MIME certificates that are untrusted or cannot be validated because of CRL errors. In this case a warning dialog is shown, allowing the user to override the errors. This is not VS-NfD compliant but can be used for unrestricted encryption. [T6701]
  • GpgOL: Mails without the correct MIME type but which still look like crypto mails are now decrypted. This improves compatibility with Apple Mail and various mail gateways that modify the structure of crypto mails in transit. [T6701]
  • GpgOL: The internal attachments are now called "GpgOL_MIME_structure.mime" instead of "GpgOL_MIME_structure.txt" to make it easier to link them to Kleopatra. This is, for example, visible for users when using the Outlook web interface. [T6656]
  • GpgOL: The initialization has been moved to avoid the incorrect message that GpgOL is causing a slow start of Outlook. This message might still be shown, since Outlook shows this sometimes regardless of actual timings, but the delay should be 0ms. [T6856]
  • GpgOL: The security approval dialog has been improved to better show problems with the available certificates in case a compliant encryption is not possible. [T6742 T6743 T6744]
  • GpgOL: The security approval dialog now increases its size based on the number of recipients to avoid having to use a scroll bar. [T6837]
  • Kleopatra: The state of Kleopatra is now properly stored in configuration files when Kleopatra is shut down on user log out. [T6667]
  • Kleopatra: Importing a certificate with Kleopatra will now open the main window of Kleopatra. [T6671]
  • Kleopatra: No longer unnecessarily watches the clipboard for changes; this could have caused issues with password managers that would empty the clipboard as soon as a third-party application tried to access it. [T6531]
  • Kleopatra: It is no longer possible to set expiry dates in the past. [T6519]
  • Kleopatra: Importing multiple certificates at once can no longer cause Kleopatra to lock up. [T6323]
  • Kleopatra: When generating keys on a smart card in compliance mode, only compliant algorithms are offered. [T6750]
  • Kleopatra: Fixed an issue where certificate tags would not be displayed correctly after reloading certificates. [T6768]
  • GpgOL: The security approval dialog now correctly updates the compliance status after switching protocols. [T6600]
  • GpgOL: The security approval is now always shown and displays the correct state for groups containing untrusted or otherwise non-compliant certificates. [T6401]
  • GpgOL: Fixed an issue with S/MIME opaque signed mails where the contents of invalid signed mails would not be shown. [T6624]
  • GpgOL: When generating a key through the security approval dialog, the configured default algorithms from GnuPG are now used. [T6805]
  • GpgOL: Generating keys through the security approval dialog now works as intended. [T6813 T6823 T6566]
  • GpgOL: A crash issue has been resolved that could occur when switching between different Outlook views, for example, from the calendar back to the mail view, while a crypto mail was open. This crash was only happening in Outlook versions older than Outlook 2019 or when the "always preview messages" setting was enabled. This potential crash affected all modern versions of GpgOL. (T6861)

Version 4.2.0 released 2023-07-14

  • Okular (GnuPG Edition): Gpg4win has been extended with the popular Okular PDF Viewer. Although our Okular version is currently considered experimental and therefore not installed by default, this provides the ability to legally sign and verify documents with the S/MIME certificates and smart cards GnuPG supports. The GnuPG Edition of Okular is optimized to be lightweight and to provide as little attack surface as possible. It does not support any active content like JavaScript or media files in PDF documents. It should therefore be more suitable in high security environments than other PDF readers. See: https://www.gpg4win.org/version4.2.html
  • GnuPG: The new component "keyboxd" is now enabled by default for new users of Gpg4win. keyboxd stores certificates (public keys) in an sqlite database and keeps it in memory. The resulting performance improvement can be quite large especially for users with large keyrings. Adventuresome users can enable it manually: Select all certificates in Kleopatra and export them with a right click. Add a file %APPDATA%\gnupg\common.conf with the contents "use-keyboxd" (without the quote marks), then restart Kleopatra and import your certificates again. As usual we caution to make a backup of the %APPDATA%\gnupg directory before modifying files in there. To switch back to the old behavior, add a "#" character in front of the "use-keyboxd" and restart Kleopatra. Where applicable you have to export the certificate before and import them again after the restart.
  • mkportable has been removed. Please see: https://wiki.gnupg.org/Gpg4win/PortableVersion on how to create a portable version of Gpg4win.
  • Kleopatra: Folder encryption and decryption (gpgtar) has been completely reworked so that it now has roughly the same performance as on the command line. The new architecture also allows for further performance improvements in the future and is much more robust. And solves several issues. [T5478 T6488 T6499 et.al.]
  • Kleopatra: The progress indicator now also works for very large data files. [T6534]
  • Kleopatra: It is now possible to rename the output file, if a file with the same name already exists, instead of just overwriting or canceling. [T6372]
  • Kleopatra: It is now offered to delete the secret key on the computer after it was successfully transferred to a smart card. [T5836]
  • Kleopatra: Added warnings when your certificate or other certificates in your keyring are about to expire. The warnings are configurable and should allow a smoother switch to a new or extended certificate. [T6452]
  • Kleopatra: The Notepad now also uses the last chosen certificates for signing and self-encryption as default. The values are shared with file encryption.[T6415]
  • Kleopatra: The startup time of Kleopatra has been slightly improved. [T6259]
  • Kleopatra: The certificate selection input and dropdown fields are now alphabetically sorted. [T6492, T6514]
  • Kleopatra: Backed up subkeys can now be restored through the UI even when they were used from a smart card in between. [T3456, T3391]
  • Kleopatra: For certifications of public keys it is now possible to configure a default validity period. [T6452]
  • Kleopatra: When extending the validity period of a certificate, the default for new ones is now preset. [T6479]
  • Kleopatra: The default validity of new certificates is now three years instead of two. This can be changed through configuration. [T2701]
  • GpgOL: Now offers to create a OpenPGP certificate, if none with signing capability exists and only signing is requested. [T5869]
  • GnuPG: The PKCS#12 (.p12 files) parser has been rewritten to increase compatibility with other PKCS#12 implementations. [T6536]
  • GnuPG: S/MIME certificate listings have been sped up on Windows. [rG08ff55bd44]
  • GnuPG: A new option "ADSK" has been added to signal the intention that messages should be encrypted to multiple subkeys. [T6395, https://gnupg.org/blog/20230321-adsk.html]
  • GnuPG: There are now more compressed formats detected for which GnuPG then automatically disables its builtin compression. This can result in significant speed ups. [T6332]
  • Kleopatra: An accidental timeout when creating checksum files has been removed. This could result in empty or incomplete checksum files. [T6573]
  • Kleopatra: The validity period of all subkeys is now extended even if the primary key was already expired. This fixes the case where seemingly extended keys were no longer usable for encryption. [T6473]
  • Kleopatra: A rare occurrence, where encryption only keys would be offered as signing keys, has been fixed. [T6456]
  • Kleopatra: Some obsolete configuration options have been removed. [T6326 T6327]
  • Kleopatra: The button "What's this" in the right upper corner has been removed, since it was only used in very few places. [T6318]
  • Kleopatra: Canceling file operations now reliably cancels the underlying backend operations, too. [T6524]
  • Kleopatra: A number of encoding problems when displaying output from the backend have been solved. [T5960]
  • Kleopatra: A cause for longer loading time of the certificate list at startup was fixed. [T6261]
  • Kleopatra: Selecting cancel when exporting a secret subkey now properly cancels instead of creating a file without the secret part. [T5755]
  • Kleopatra: When importing secret keys you do not want to mark as your own, it is no longer asked multiple times if it is your own key. [T6474]
  • GnuPG/Kleopatra: Error handling for permission and write errors has been improved across the board. [T6528]
  • GpgOL: An issue has been fixed where crypto mails would show up empty if text/plain display was preferred. [T6357]
  • GpgOL: Fixed a crash that occurred when encrypting a mail with an attachment without a file name. [T6546]
  • GpgOL: Category and flag changes now work again if the mail is not displayed in a decrypted state when they are made. [T4127]
  • GpgOL: Added safeguards against a plain text leak back to the server in a specific unusual configuration. (dd3ff839)
  • GnuPG: For a full list of the backend changes between GnuPG 2.4.0 in Gpg4win-4.1.0 and GnuPG 2.4.3 in Gpg4win-4.2.0 please see: 2.4.1: https://lists.gnupg.org/pipermail/gnupg-announce/2023q2/000478.html 2.4.2: https://lists.gnupg.org/pipermail/gnupg-announce/2023q2/000479.html 2.4.3: https://lists.gnupg.org/pipermail/gnupg-announce/2023q3/000480.html

Version 4.0.4 released 2022-10-17

  • GnuPG: Avoids "invalid hash method" errors by using SHA-256 for certificates with implicit SHA-1 preferences in de-vs mode. (T6043)
  • GnuPG: In de-vs mode use AES-128 instead of 3-DES as implicit preference. This avoids problems with software considering 3-DES as non-compliant but does only announce 3-DES as supported algorithm. (T6063)
  • GnuPG: Add new LDAP server flag "areconly" (A-record-only) to help against long delays on some AD installations.
  • GnuPG: New feature to mirror an LDAP keyserver to a Web key Directory. (T6224)
  • GnuPG: Improve reporting of bad passphrase errors during PKCS#11 import. (T5713,T6037)
  • GnuPG: It is now possible to forbid users to trust additional root certificates. The option for this is "no-user-trustlist". (T5990)
  • GnuPG: It is now possible to change the default filename (trustlist.txt) for the list of S/MIME root certificates. The option for this is "sys-trustlist-name" or on Windows it can be configured in the registry. This allows admins to change the S/MIME root certificates from the packaged default without having it overwritten with each update. (T5990)
  • GnuPG: The "display serial number" is now used for card insert prompts. This should match the serial number printed on smart cards. (T6135)
  • GnuPG: New "common.conf" option "no-autostart". (rG203dcc19eb)
  • GpgOL: Groups configured in Kleopatra can now be used for mail encryption. Groups must contain only keys of one protocol (either S/MIME or OpenPGP) and be named like the mail address. (T5967)
  • GpgOL: An exclamation mark at the end of the GpgOL config registry values under "Local machine" now disallows the user to change that setting. (T5827)
  • Kleopatra: Any configuration settings in kleopatrarc are now configurable through the Windows Registry / Group Policies, too. (T5707)
  • Kleopatra: Automatic extraction of tar archives can now be disabled in the Kleopatra settings. (T6057)
  • Kleopatra: The original filename is now embedded in encrypted files. (T6056)
  • Kleopatra: In case the embedded filename does not match the filename of the encrypted file, the user is asked after decryption if the file should be renamed to the embedded name. This only works for files encrypted with GnuPG VS-Desktop 3.1.24 or later. (T6056)
  • Kleopatra: The user is now asked which file should be verified if the signed data for a detached signature (.sig) could not be found automatically. (T6062)
  • Kleopatra: Queries containing just a single character are now allowed when searching in remote directories. This should make it easier to list all certificates in a directory. (T6064)
  • Kleopatra: When a user specific trustlist.txt is created by Kleopatra it now adds the "include-default" keyword, so that the system wide trustlist.txt is still included. (T6096)
  • Kleopatra: The storage location is now displayed per subkey to better support offline keys and multiple smart cards. (T6108)
  • Kleopatra: The certificate details now have an explicit update button to refresh a key from the configured directory services. (T5903)
  • Kleopatra: The fingerprint with the suffix .rev is now used as suggested filename for revocation certificates. (T6121)
  • Kleopatra: Several more file dialogs now save the last used directory. (T6121)
  • Kleopatra: When withdrawing certifications, the own certifications on the certificate are now automatically determined. (T6115)
  • GnuPG: Update the X.509/CMS parsing library Libksba to version 1.6.2 to fix a severe security problem. (T6230)
  • GnuPG: Do not consider unknown public keys as non-compliant while decrypting. (T6205)
  • GnuPG: Fix CRL Distribution Point fallback to other schemes.
  • GnuPG: Fix upload of multiple keys for an LDAP server specified using the colon format.
  • GnuPG: Fix a key upload problem when a BaseDN is specified for an LDAP server. (T6047)
  • GnuPG: YubiKeys with firmware versions 5.4 and above are correctly detected again. (T6070)
  • GnuPG: Combined symmetric and asymmetric encryption / decryption is now displayed as VS-NfD compliant, if appropriate. (T6119)
  • GnuPG: A misleading error message when transferring keys to a smart card was changed. (T6122)
  • GnuPG: The options "auto-key-import" and "include-key-block" are changeable through Kleopatra, again. (T6138)
  • GnuPG: A possible path traversal security issue regarding "gpg-wks-server" has been fixed. This only affects users of "gpg-wks-server" in a WKS deployment. (T6098)
  • GnuPG: Fix a regression in "READKEY --format=ssh". (T6012)
  • GpgOL: Fixed some encoding issues.
  • GpgOL: Issue with sender resolution for draft mails fixed.
  • GpgOL: A hang and performance problem when displaying unencrypted mails with a specific structure has been fixed. (#8917)
  • GpgOL: Stale temporary files created by GpgOL are now deleted to avoid clutter on systems that do not clean the temporary files. (T5926)
  • GpgOL: Fix a regression in IMAP access to encrypted mails. (T6203)
  • Kleopatra: No longer reports success when adding an empty userid. (T5997)
  • Kleopatra: The maximum expiration date is now 2106-02-05. (T5991)
  • Kleopatra: S/MIME certificate trees are no longer collapsed when details are opened by double click. (T6055)
  • Kleopatra: Minor improvements to the encrypt / sign recipient selection dialog. (T6080)
  • Kleopatra: Canceling the password entry when exporting a secret key now correctly aborts the operation. (T6090)
  • Kleopatra: A family of startup crashes has been fixed. The crashes would show up in the event log as crashes in libstdc++6.dll. (T6131)
  • Kleopatra: Fixed a very rare hang when archiving files. This caused Kleopatra never to finish an archiving operation. (T6139)
  • Kleopatra: When only a single OpenPGP certificate is imported, the question about weather to certify it has been restored. (T6144)
  • Kleopatra: Problems of "Failed to move directory" when decrypting archives on systems where the users TEMP directory was placed on Microsoft virtual hard disks have been resolved. (T6147)
  • Kleopatra: The following dialogs have been changed so that they are usable: * with keyboard only * with a screenreader (tested NVDA and ORCA) * with 400% magnification * with high contrast color scheme (T6073) * with inverted color scheme (T6073) - OpenPGP certificate creation (T5969, T5832) - The main window toolbar (T6026) - Certificate Details (T5843) - Certificate certification (T6046) - Expiration date change (T6080) - Group configuration (T6095) - DN Attribute Order configuration (T6089) - Subkey details (T6104) - Certifications view (T6102) - Self Test (T6101)
  • Kleopatra: Generating a new OpenPGP certificate is reduced to a single dialog. (T5832)
  • Kleopatra: Creating an S/MIME Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is now a standalone action in Kleopatras file menu. (T5832)
  • Kleopatra: Links used in Kleopatra texts are now accessible for screenreaders. (T6034)
  • Kleopatra: Text parts (labels) are now selectable and the selection is highlighted. This is easier to control with a Screenreader. (T6036)
  • Kleopatra: Tooltip pop-ups are now read out by screenreaders. (T6044)
  • Kleopatra: All icon-only buttons should now have a description which can be read by Screenreaders. (T6088)
  • Kleopatra: Navigating the certificate list with the keyboard is improved. (T5841)
  • Kleopatra: Validity period labels have been unified to "Valid from" and "Valid until" respectively. (T6120)
  • Kleopatra: Compliance display has been simplified by removing the "communication is possible" part. (T5855)

  • GpgOL: Fixed an issue where unencrypted drafts of mails were stored on the Exchange Server and could be restored through the "recently deleted items" option. Especially if the draft encryption, introduced in Gpg4win-3.1.8, is used this can be a security issue. (T5022) Gpg4win cannot offer guarantees that Outlook does not send data which is entered *before* the encryption to Microsoft or an Exchange Server. Under Windows with Outlook this is impossible to control. The draft encryption option is our best effort to avoid this.
